ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Mac Properties announced Thursday the start of construction to St. Louis' newest apartment tower in the Central West End.

One Hundred is a residential tower overlooking Forest Park in the heart of the CWE. The tower will rise to 385 feet and include retail, amenities, parking, and 316 residential apartments. 

Construction will proceed through 2018 and 2019 with residents expected to move in the summer of 2020. 

The design of a proposed apartment building near Forest Park was unveiled to nearby residents in 2016.

The planned 385-foot building, which is estimated to cost $130 million, was met with mostly support when it was unveiled.

“I think it’s a big contrast to the Chase Park building, but I think it’s the right direction for the neighborhood,” said Lee Guo, who has lived in the area for three years.

New Jersey Developer Mac Properties is working with architecture firm Studio Gang on the project. Studio Gang has designed signature buildings such as Aqua Tower in Chicago.
